REACH was established on 9th March 2012 to bridge the gap in post diagnostic services across Lanarkshire, to provide support to families who have a young person with an Autism Spectrum Condition living within the authority of South Lanarkshire.
Following a period of working closely within the autism community, it was noted there existed a need to work pan-Lanarkshire to provide much needed support and activities in both North and South Lanarkshire and reflect the diagnostic services used by those within NHS Lanarkshire.
REACH Lanarkshire Autism was established in March 2012 to bridge the gap in post diagnostic services throughout Lanarkshire. REACH is a parent led, pan Lanarkshire charity and currently has around 270 members.
We are looking to employ an Activity Co-ordinator to create new activities for our children and young people in both North and South Lanarkshire. These activities will be community based to ensure easy access for our families. The Activity Co-ordinator will provide support to staff in our current activities to ensure our children and young people are supported, have fun and make progress.
This is a full-time post which has been funded for one year by The Big Lottery’s Young Start programme. We would hope that the position will show a need for continued funding to extend the length of the contract.
Whilst it is desirable that the successful applicant is educated to degree level, the post holder must have knowledge and experience of working with people with Autism. Ideally, we would be keen to hear from people who have worked in a similar background and possess the necessary skills to provide support to both staff and service users. The post holder will be required to register with the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme.
